Did you get to watch Whiplash, the film? I would recommend it strongly and urge
you to watch it before it is taken off the
city screens.
The music of jazz, the drama, the passion, the heat
makes this a film a movie buff cannot miss.
There is a lot about jazz that can impact your body
and mind. In our city, we rarely get bands
playing it.
I recall our Anglo-Indian musicians jamming on
jazz after they did their acts at the weekend entertainment at Hotel Shiraz in Egmore.
You get to listen to strains of it in our vintage Tamil
films too - scored in an era when Anglo-Indian and Goan
musicians packed into our recording studios in Vadapalani and Arcot Road.
Mridangam artiste Umayalpuram Mali has been
telling me that he is keen to know more about these
musicians and their music. Many are either dead or have
moved out of the city.
In the early 80s, there used to be a restaurant in
the shopping arcade opposite AVM Rajeswari Kalyana
Mandapam on Dr. Radhakrishnan Salai which hosted
live jazz shows for diners, on the weekend. The promoter was a hardcore jazz rasika and even
though the patronage was thin, he persisted with the live
music till his patience hit a low note.
More recently, the new director of the GoetheInstitut has been keen to host jazz shows and is eager
to locate bands in the city and in Bangalore and Goa to
invite them to his theatre.
Events promoter Eddie says he is preparing to host
the second edition of the Jazz Fest in our city but first, he
has to grapple with sponsorship and hospitality issues.
I wonder if it will be possible to coax a city restaurant to spare its space once a month to a night of jazz.
Live music has been forced out by DJs and much of the
latter seems to sound the same.
Perhaps the jazz music rasika community of Chennai can make things happen. Whiplash!
GURU SUGUNA PURUSHOTHAMAN
PASSES AWAY IN CHENNAI
Senior Carnatic music guru, scholar and
vocalist Suguna Purushothaman passed
away in Chennai
on Feb.25 afternoon after a prolonged illness.
She was battling
cancer for a long
time but this did
not stop her from
taking part in
key music and
academic events
in the city.
Her last rites were held on Feb.26 at the
Besant Nagar crematorium.
Suguna Purushothaman had her initial
training under Musiri Subramania Iyer and
carried forth his bani in her singing career.
She learnt under Semmangudi Srinivasa
Iyer and Manchala Jaganatha Rao. She also
learnt music under Thinniyam Venkatarama
Iyer, mastering the laya skills.

mastery over ‘dwitala avadhana’, that is
singing a pallavi in different ‘talam’ on

She formed a trio, with late Mani Krishnaswami and Suguna Varadhachari, holding
up the Musiri bani.
Besides being a busy vocalist and scholar who took part in academic debates, she
composed music, ran a music school called
Sunadam, and brought out a book on
rare pallavis.
She was a Top A grade artiste of All
India Radio and was on the panel of experts
at Music Academy’s December season
academic sessions, which she attended
regularly.
Among the many awards of recognition
she was decorated with was the national
Sangeet Natak Akademi award, the state’s

award by the Music Academy among others.
She resided in Abhiramapuram, Chennai.

Low key celebrations of
Jayalalithaa’s birthday
Celebrations of the birthday of AIADMK chief, J Jayalalithaa in the Mylapore neighborhood turned out to be very
low key. The splash of party flags and buntings, the reams
of large posters and
banners which we usually get to see on such
occasions were few and
far between in various
places we visited through
the day. The one big
show that the party unit
hosted was held at the
Corporation Wedding
Hall in Alwarpet where
scores of men and women
were given veshtis and
saris and a few seniors
were given cycles.
Mayana Kollai ritual celebrated in
Mylapore carries on old tradition
Report and photos by Madan
If you wanted to be
part of or look from afar at
what is an ancient ritual
that is still followed in
the Mylapore neighborhood, then you should have
been at the Mayana Kollai
ritual in south
R. A. Puram.
Mayana Kollai falls
a day after the Sivaratri
celebration and is related
to the worship of the
Angala Parameswari
goddess. Th day began with
the creation out of mud of
a giant, almost 20 feet tall
image of the arakkar in the
playground located off the
Jesus Calls office on Dr.
D G S Dhinakaran Road.
In the old times, this
ritual took place in or
near a graveyard - it is
said that lord Shiva sent
Parvati to kill a demon
who was located in a burial
ground. In the R A Puram
instance, communities from
the Pattinapakkam area (
Foreshore Estate) organized this ritual in which,
in the old times, the fiery
goddess would raid the
graves to locate the demon
- it was, as oldtimers recall,
a macabre ritual.
That February 18 evening, the community gathered at the Amman temple
on P S Kumaraswamy Raja
Road ( alongside Andhra
Mahila Sabha) and took
out the procession of the
amman.
In the middle was a
man who slowly went in a
trance and seized a chicken
that was given to him - he
screwed it to death and
feasted on its blood as it
dripped down. All this took
place as folk artistes played
loud music and the procession headed to the local
playground.
Organisers said that
since there was no local graveyard, they used
the playground space to
conduct the ritual. At the
venue, the symbolic act
that was very severe and
raw in the old times was
enacted. And the procession
winded it way back to the
temple.
There is an Angala
Parameswari temple also
on Mundagakanni Amman
Koil Street and the Mayana
Kollai ritual was also followed here by another
set of fishermen from the
kuppams and colonies off
San Thome High Road. The
venue was the graveyard
behind the Headquarters of
the TN Police.
There are four amman
temples in this area and
the Mundakakanni Amman
Temple is the oldest.
Clearly, a celebration of
Mayana Kollai carries on
traditions that have been
followed for ages; from a
time when there was no
Madras and the dominant
community on the seaside
were the fishermen.

concepts so well
that we never felt
the need to take

or tuitions after

CMD of Indian
Bank, Chennai M. S. Sundarajan
remembers the
enthusiasm with
which the students participated
in competitions
held at the school.
The 1965 batch at their golden jubilee reunion
with their spouses. Arrangements had
been made to hand over a
framed picture of the students along with a copy
of the souvenir to the attendees. Donations were
then presented. A single
donation of Rs.58 lakhs
was made by an alumni

a contribution of about
Rs.7 lakhs by

The 1965 batch of students of

Emotions ran high. And they made
a big donation to their alma mater.
Whatsapp group and putting
it out on Facebook”. Several meetings were
organised and very often the
meetings and talks about old
times went hand in hand. Ganesh who retired from
Abbott India, says, “We would
get together quite often to
plan the agenda for the alumni meet. Minute details were
thought of and worked out.
We also had a lot of fun talking about life at the school.”
What does he remember
best?
“ I still remember this
incident . . .At that time,
going to Mount Road from
Mylapore was considered
taboo. Along with two of my
friends, I decided to go to
Mount Road to watch a movie
on a Sunday morning. Three
of my teachers had also come
there to watch the movie and
they were shocked to see me.
I got so scared that I decided
to bunk school the next day.
When I went to school on
Tuesday, I expected the worst
but I was
K. V. Ramani presenting the cheque
reprimanded
and let off with
a warning!.”
School was
everything to
these boys in
the 60s. They
would rush off
to school at

and play
in the school grounds. P. S. Senior Secondary
School hadn’t come up then
and they had almost 20 acres
of empty space to run around
and play. Ganesh says,
“One thing I cannot forget are
the weaving classes which
were held at the school once a
week our teacher would allow
us to stay back after school
and weave…and we would
have so much fun”.
Owning a cycle was a
luxury in the 60s. Ganesh,
who used to live at Narasimhapuram, says, “I got my cycle in the 3rd form (present
8th Std) and used to cycle to
school even though I stayed
close by. Traffic didn’t exist at
that time and so I could cycle
all the way from my home to
the school without touching
the handlebar - something we
cannot even think of doing
today”.
R. Sadasivam, another
alumni, fondly remembers
his headmaster R. Narasimhachari, English teacher
Ramaswami Iyer, math
professor K. N. Jayaraman
and sports master S. Venkataraman. This retired
auditor who has used to live
in N. M. K. Mudali Street,
Mylapore says “Our teachers
understood and explained the

Sundarajan, who has been a
resident of Mylapore all his
life, says,”Debates, slokas,
essay, Thirukkural, music
and several other competitions were held in every class
towards the end of the year.
All of us looked really forward
to this event”. The Founders Day event
on campus on Feb 15 started
with breakfast followed by
a photo session of the students of the 1965 batch along
“
India Anglo American Plc
based at New Delhi. The
rest was donated by the
other alumni. This was
an alumni meet which
still generates a buzz
among the 1965 batch.
P. S. School has made it
a tradition to encourage
a golden jubilee alumni
meet every February.
The 1966 batch will now
have to get into excitement mode.
“Our teachers never demanded respect, they
commanded it. They were kind, yet disciplined
and this balance helped us reach great heights”.
- R. Sadasivam.
“Prayer sessions at that time were so
organised. After the morning prayers, we would
quietly and slowly go from the prayer hall to our classrooms - like ants in a line”
- M. S. Sundarajan.
“Out of 300 students, we managed to locate about 90 and
70 of them attended the meet with their spouses. We had
members coming in from as far as U. S. A., Indonesia and
Singapore”.
“
So what happens
when a group of ‘boys’
meet after 50 years…
amidst tears and hugs,
they make a huge donation of more than 70 lakh
rupees to their school…
and that’s not all…they
honour seven of their
teachers with Rs.10,000
each, a shirt and a dhothi.
The class of 1965
left no stone unturned to
ensure that their Feb 15
meet was a grand success. Over six months of
2014, they meticulously
planned this event.

passed out in 1965 says,

Sewage flow polluting this Mandavelipakkam area
Sewage water stagnates in front of door
No.7 (old No.3), Periyapalli Street, Mandavelipakkam and this has been the case for about
6 months. It looks like it overflows from that
sewage pipe.
On alternate days, the sewage lorry visits
the area and sucks out the sewage water from
the septic tank in this residence.The problem is
continuing. CMWSSB and Chennai Corporation are not
accepting the complaint through the internet.
We hope this letter will bring some relief.

Construction creating problems
for residents
We reside in 2nd Main Road in R. A. Puram.
The new flats under construction by Sri Venkateswara Homes are located opposite Madras
ENT Research Foundation. The work is causing
a lot of pollution. Despite requesting the site supervisor several
times, the sawing of stones is being done for
almost a month now and is continuing. They
start the work early in the morning and continue
till late evening - as late as 9 p.m.
A aged people at home and students who
are preparing for final exams are extremely affected. When we contacted the firm’s office the
answer was blunt - ‘We have got all approvals
from Corporation. Do what you can.’
- Letter signed on behalf of local residents.

Gas price issues; on subsidy
I received our supply of Indane Gas from
South Madras Gas Agency in January and
February.
In January, the cost of a cylinder gas was
Rs 705, in Feb. it was Rs 600. While the price
reduction (due to crude import cost gains) is
welcomed, it was a surprise to see subsidy
credited to bank account reduced from Rs 300 in
Jan. to Rs 195 in February.
Obviously the benefit of price reduction is
not passed on to customers and taken away in
the form of reduction in subsidy by govt. / oil
cos. Why bleed the lower and middle classes? - C. S. Muralidharan, Dr Ranga Road,
Mylapore.
Appeal to MTC: info on bus
services in Mylapore
I appeal to.the MTC authorities to provide
a notice board in key areas giving the details
of the MTC buses starting from Mylapore with
their numbers, destination and departing time
for the benefit of the passengers.
- R. Chandrasekaran, West Circular Road,
Mandaveli.
Involve citizens in
traffic management
Traffic violations have become a big
headache in Mylapore. There are many minor
accidents and brushes. The local Traffic Police
have no time to curtail the menace. The solution
would be to recruit retired senior citizens, give
them camera and a GPS activated unit and go
after the offenders. - Satish Bantwal, Papanasam Sivan Salai,
San Thome.
Kesavaperumalpuram forced to
live with mosquitos
Of late, there is acute mosquito menace in
Kesavaperumalpuram on Greenways Road.
Netlon screens, mosquito bats and trappers are
of no use and the residents of this area are put to
severe hardship. As soon as dusk sets in, you can see smoke
emanating from bonfires of twigs and dry leaves
lit by watchmen to ward themselves off the
swarming mosquitos. Chennai Corporation does not seem to have
taken any serious steps to curb this menace and
health hazard in this area. The stinking Buckingham Canal behind this locality is the main
source of this menace. Sweeping of streets and platforms and
garbage clearance is not satisfactory. There is
no trace of preventive measures like periodical
fogging and spraying of the streets with mosquito control chemicals, etc. May we expect the Chennai Corporations to
initiate suitable action urgently to control this
menace ?
- V. Gopalan, Kesavaperumalpuram
Managing mada streets;
suggestions
The following suggestions can be implemented immediately on South Mada Street /
mada streets.?
1. Shops have occupied the platform on both
sides of the street. Remove their stuff. Ramps
have been provided in front of the flats for free
movement of vehicles. Demolish them.
2. The hawkers may be allowed to carry on
their business only on the northern side of the
street. Not on the south side.
3. Parking of two-wheelers alone to be allowed on the southern side of the street.
4. West Chitrakulam Steet is meant for
vegetable vendors only but others are allowed to
carry on their business. They must be evicted.
5. The mada streets can be made ‘one way’.
6. The waste can be collected on a daily
basis - educate the hawkers.
7. For a month or two, the system should be
effectivly followed by the Corporation and supported by local police.

CHIPS. BARFI. LADOOS.
By Preeti Srivatsan
Crunch and Crispy is a new
chips store which has opened at
the south end of C. P. Ramaswamy
Road, Alwarpet. All the foodstuff
here is from the popular A-1 Chips
store at Coimbatore.
Run by M. Kannan and
T. Karthikeyan, this store stocks
a variety of chips and savouries.
Karthikeyan says, “We would visit
Coimbatore quite often and once on
those visits we were very impressed
with the snacks sold at A-1 Chips.”
The idea was translated soon
thereafter.
Specialities include
round tapoica chips,
nendranga chips
and peanut and jaggery barfi. They also
stock different kinds of
mixture, cheese
balls, popcorn, kara
boondi, onion rings,
black and white
sesame balls, and
masala groundnut
balls.
Karthikeyan
says, “All the products sold here are
factory made and
sealed in air tight
packets thereby
ensuring a long
shelf life. The unique packing helps
retain the crunchiness.”
Future plans? “We plan to open
a website soon and hope to introduce door delivery.”

CHIPS. VADAMS. KAMARKUT.
By Preeti Srivatsan
The man
behind Chennai
Chips on
C. P. Ramaswamy
Road has a
chequered business history.
Today, loyal
customers drop
in here to choose
from 16 different
kinds of chips.
Owner
E. K. Kasilingam,
a retired chemistry professor, has been
running this
business for
quite some time.
He says, “I had
a provision store
called Kasi Provision
Stores and a flour mill
at the same location earlier. About
15 years ago, I switched over to
this business.”
He says the chips are prepared
everyday using pure sunflower
oil which is not reused later. The
peeling and slicing of potatoes or
bananas are done by machines to
ensure freshness.
There are five different kinds
of potato chips in salt and chilli
flavours, beetroot, yam, tapoica,
bittergourd, kerala banana,
carrot . . . They also
sell seven varieties of vadams,
savouries like
murukku, thattai and samosas
and puffs which
are made fresh
everyday.
Those on the go
can pick up the readyto-eat home-made aloo, pudina,
methi and plain parathas at the
store - made by housewives and
supplied daily. And check out the
home-made pickles, chocolates,
juices and specialities like kamarkut, Kovilpatti barfi, Tirunelvelli
halwa and elanda vadai. At 53,

ones. The drains carry rainwater to a
sump below - to harvest rainwater.
What catches your eye are the notices; they remind people that the civic
works are carried out with the tax-payers’ money and it is people’s responsibility to maintain the facility.
What slips at the civic body’s end is
the maintenance - rarely is this carried
out. So plants grow out of drain covers, drainpipes are cracked, vegetation
grows wild.
Perhaps local involvement will
work?
